Dodgers Divorce -- $9 Mil For Jamie's Lawyers

3/29/2010 1:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fired L.A. Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt's lawyers say it's gonna cost her around $9 million in lawyers fees to seal the divorce deal with hubby Frank McCourt ... and she's already in the hole $800,000, this according to oral arguments in court this morning.



Interesting ... on Saturday, one of Jamie's lawyers, David Boies, told TMZ Frank's lawyers are charging a lot more. The divorce is expected to cost a total of $19 mil in lawyers fees. If true, we're guessing $9 million is a bargain compared to $10 mil.

The hearing over spousal support continues this AM.

It figures this hag got hooked up with the most dishonest lawyers on the face of the planet.
Relax, no judge will ever approve more than $200/hr straight time for their efforts.
Jamie, you are the most hated woman in California, why don't you just go away before some crazy Dodger fan caps your saggy ass?

only the divorce attorney's win everyone else pays a price with money or family. It's amazing how one minute you are professing undying love and the next you're trying to ruin the other person. holly matramoney see the money it distroys everything

Hmmm, David Boies turning to family law? LOL

But then if attorneys fees are based on the size of the bank account....of course Wasser is there. Wasn't it Wasser who was friends with Pellicano, the wire tapper?

Are you serious?!?!
Why do they want to pay lawyers that much money instead to give the money as a part of the settlement?!?! This is crazy and sad to see how people are playing with money nowadays!!!
